I generally listen to 71-77 the most. Once and awhile I like to venture out. RARELY 82-86 and even more rare do I listen to 92-95. I wanted to get a decent SBD of Days between and this one had Lazy River Road too so I gave it a listen. Haven't listened to set I yet ( probably not that special from the looks of it ) but was pleasantly surprised by the second set. Made for a very nice listen on the drive in today.

I don't limit myself to certain years. That is stupid. However, I only listen to shows played on Tuesdays with an "R" in the month. That is, if it is not raining.

Not raining on the Tuesday of the show or not raining on the day you feel like listening?

It really makes a big difference.

I limit myself to shows where Jerry played Guitar.

i have refined my listening choices so as to include only shows when there was a show - i realize this may preclude me from a certain amount of listening pleasure, but the line must be drawn SOMEWHERE!

I listened to Lazy River Road. Lovely. The croaky Jerry is just right for that song. The harmonizing is beautiful too.

i agree wholeheartedly. LRR is my favorite latter era tunes - and really one of my favorite GD ballads in general. Love playing it on the ol' geeetar :)

wished i had had a chance to hear that one performed live, but my touring days were done by that time.

certainly one of the last good lyrical attempts by Hunter.

Does that preclude shows where he sounds like a trumpet or flute?

Great name; and good for ragging on JOTS--he really limits himself far too much...

uh no way! I wouldn't recommend abandoning anything from those years for a 93 show. It aint THAT good that's for sure. Just better than I was expecting. I was on a huge 77 kick and now have been in a 74 groove lately. By all means don't abandon for a 93.

Problem is where do I go from here?

Hey JOTS - I've been listening to a few select tracks, as I do sometimes enjoy the 'older, gentler, wiser Jerry' sound in the last few years. Lazy River and Days Between worked for me. I also will confess a small liking for the much-maligned Liberty (hey, beats "Picasso Moon" anyday, right?), so I gave that one a spin too!

Unfortunately, when Lucy In The Sky started, I found myself deeply disturbed by Jerry's vocals. He was human after all....

I like Liberty. I don't understand why everyone hates it so much. Because it's not a jam vehicle or is just a straight ahead song that there isn't room to open up? I'm not saying it's a masterpiece but it certainly hits on what I find so special and American about the band - don't tread on me, leave me alone to do it my way etc

"Days Between", "So Many Roads", and Lazy River Road", are real good reasons, to not ignore shows from this era . It is interesting, that unlike so many f his 60's brethren, He ( and Hunter ) was able to come up with songs as strong as these , this far along in his career ,
I feel DB is right up there with his best .

Oh and the rest of the show is pretty good also !
